Both the House of Commons and the House of Lords are subject to the Freedom of Information Act.

They are individually classed as public authorities so it is possible to make requests to both of them, however, it is often the case that one will centrally hold the information.

The following email addresses can be used to contact them:

House of Commons: foicommons@parliament.uk

House of Lords: hlinfo@parliament.uk

I am a journalist and author. I am a staff writer at the UK edition of WIRED magazine and in 2015 my book, Freedom of Information: A Practical Guide for UK Journalists, was published. I created FOI Directory in 2012.
